Media queries

We thank all media for your generous support in spreading the word about our 11th Annual Spot Prawn Festival.

Media Accreditation

The Spot Prawn Festival is free to attend, with paid tickets for wristbands to access the Spot Prawn Boil and the beverage tent.

All media are welcome to attend the free areas of the festival

A small allocation of passes for the Spot Prawn Boil will be allocated on a case-by-case basis, subject to the relevance of assignment, and at the event organizer’s discretion.

 To apply for media accreditation and a wrist band for the boil, you must:

1) Be a reporter, writer, editor, blogger, videographer or photographer on assignment, with proof of assignment

2) Freelance media wishing to attend must prove assignment, or proof of past and pre-event coverage

3) Be covering for a news source relevant to food, beverage, cooking, restaurant, family, fisheries, or related categories


Those not eligible to receive media wrist bands:

1) Publicists, advertising representatives, or sales and marketing personnel

2) Those writing for corporate newsletters and other limited circulation publications


Wrist bands for those media with pre-approved access to the Spot Prawn Boil will be available for pick up at the media sign in tent next to registration.

Non-credentialed companions of media representatives are not eligible for complimentary wrist bands.

Identification will be required at time of pick up.

To register on-site, you must provide a copy of a press card from a recognized media outlet with current membership status.

Even if you do not have a ticket to the boil, there is much to see. If you would like to interview a chef on-site, please contact Genevieve Dufresne at We look forward to seeing you at this year’s festival!
